Matching Gifts – through your Employer

Many companies offer matching gift programs to encourage employees to contribute to charitable organizations. Most of these programs match contributions dollar for dollar, and some will even double or triple the amount of your gift.

Please check with your company to see if it offers a matching gift program.

If your employer requires an Employer Identification Number (EIN) (i.e. Federal Tax Identification Number), please use 27-0732786

You can mail or email your completed matching gift form to:


Or email at loriehearn@inewsource.org

Gifts of Stocks or Securities

Gifts of appreciated securities – including publicly traded and privately held stock and mutual funds – offer a two-fold tax savings because the donor is entitled to take a charitable deduction for the full current value of appreciated securities (held longer than one year), and is able to avoid paying the capital gains tax that would be due if the donor sold the securities.

To initiate a transfer of securities held by a brokerage or commercial bank, notify the broker or bank that you intend to electronically transfer the securities to inewsource. This can often be done online or you can download a PDF form to give to your broker:

Planned giving offers the greatest opportunity for our donors to make their largest gift to inewsource. Often referred to as an “ultimate gift,” it can help donors accomplish more through their giving than they may have imagined was possible.

A bequest is one of the easiest gifts to make. With the help of an advisor, you can include language in your will or trust specifying a gift to be made to inewsource.

If you have questions about planned gifts, please call

Endowment Fund

Our donors are planning for the future of inewsource as a sustainable and viable organization. In 2015, with a seed gift from one of our valued and generous donors, we established an endowment fund at the Rancho Santa Fe Foundation. As it grows through additional contributions and investment earnings, the fund provides annual support for both the current needs and the long-term sustainability of inewsource.

Donations for the Endowment Fund can be sent directly to:
